Bison Man Posts $1M Cash Bond In Kidnapping, Rape Case

BISON, S.D. (AP) – A Bison man has posted $1 million in cash to bond out after being charged with kidnapping and rape.

A Perkins County grand jury’s indictment of 55-year-old Richard Seidel stems from a Nov. 2 incident. Seidel also faces domestic violence and gun-related charges.

Seidel was released on Monday after posting the $1 million in cash via certified funds.

Defense attorney Tim Rensch says that Seidel will plead not guilty at his arraignment scheduled for Dec. 5.

Seidel faces felony counts that include a maximum sentence of life in prison if he were to be convicted.
